Now that the farm house is close to completion in the the ‘Big Gussy Up’ project it’s relatively easy to locate the next project.

The 3-holer…is an obvious choice.

Here’s an idea to mull over. While I’m not a fan of the large mirror on the inside of the door, I do like the natural lighting (also good for ventilation), floor mats and plantings on the exterior.

I offer this as an ideal project for the locals to work on next summer. Sorry I won’t be able to help.

4 of the Dedicated 5

A dedicated group of 5 helped clean up the “remote camp” shovel full by shovel full on Sunday. There was a cement floor under all that dirt.

Lunch of a cold drink and sandwiches of roasted wild turkey (shot the evening before) was well deserved. 

And yes you heard that right. I shot my second turkey of the season last Saturday evening. It was a bearded hen—or as one might say in Madison, gender confused. Taste was not affected!  

The next work day will be sometime in July – when it’s unbearably hot, humid and buggy. That’s what I call a work day!
